“Why don’t you get a laser done ? Life would be easy without specs all the time son.”
“There is nothing so beautiful about this world it seems. Specs let me choose to blur out the ugliness when I want. So I don’t need a permanent solution to the sight.”
The teenager knew better than most of us.
“Yeah, I’ll wait. For the first time ever I know I can, and I will.”
Both mind and heart were in sync first time ever . In all these years, she was ready to wait blindly, not knowing when will he return from the ships. And not knowing if he even does, will his love be the same? Took a leap of faith.
“Cat fights and 5 forks in one bowl of noodles.”, a tear drop smiled down my cheek .
They see me head over heels for him and tell me how bright my face glows around him.
Sadly, they don’t know the darkness of deep caves within me.
It’s been 7 years now, he’s never kissed my forehead .
Lying beside him, my mind and heart still desire of that perfect man, one day ... some day?
Scared, looks in the mirror .
“We are too old and wrinkled now for a date. Is this even right ?“
“You’re beautiful even today, just as you were, back then in college .” , he gazed back at her .
Love was blooming once again , at 58.
Fear was lingering her heart when she thought of the far wide oceans separating them.
Opened Whatsapp .
He had snapped her her name scribbled on the soft shore.
“Yes, I love you too”, she blushed.
I often have a question . While everyone is a part of this rat race to achieve an infinite game in the market , anchoring our own little lights , we often tend to fail and cause the zeal to dim out.
As much as we are expected to keep trying, “ are we biting more than we can chew ?”
